Garden Party







michael kors rosegold watch // dillard's necklace {similar here} // target bracelets // ann taylor bracelet


With Jason back in school, to say that I need a vacation would be the understatement of my life, but it's just not a reality in the immediate future.  So I browse online and dream of packing for a vacation - and you won't believe the one stop shop at Joules!  I found everything from light weight knits to sandals and accessories.  I absolutely love everything (check out this darling top, and these fun shorts... oh, and this versatile skirt!)

Since I'm not going to be packing up my family for a tropical beach, my eyes landed on this dress and I had to go for it.  I've been on the hunt for a lady like floral dress that doesn't require a cardigan layered over it and I finally found one.  I love that it is cotton so it's machine washable (I have waaaay too many 'dry clean' only pieces) and I feel like I could be ready for a Garden Party at a moments notice.

I first started shopping with Joules when Jas bought me my pink boots (seen here and here) and now I have my eye on these gems for this fall/winter.  Have you ever shopped their site?  If so, I would love to know what you purchased in the comments.

Thank you for stopping by!

I adore that dress - the colours are so pretty - and the design fits in perfectly with my comfort zone (with the sleeve & hem length)...you look stunning!

You look gorgeous, like you are ready for the derby or such. I had never heard of Joules before but just checked them out really quick; they have some great pieces! Thanks for sharing.

This dress is stunning! And I love that you paired it with the nude heels and the fun sunhat! I hope you guys get a mini vaca soon, you deserve it!
